Kurzbeschreibung / description

The overarching objective of the thesis is to determine what policies and private investments need to be implemented in order to effectively infiltrate small-scale, off-grid renewables in rural energy development in India. Specifically, research will be focused on the market barriers of Solar Home Systems in rural India and how to further engage the micro-finance and rural financing institutions in the funding of renewable energy.
